Is there a JQL Query for tranistion from the Bug issuetype to a different issuetype like Story

QA logs a defect and the initial issuetype is bug
During a bug scrub, the bug issue type was changed to Story or some other issue type.
Is there way to query for issue starting as a bug and then being changed to some other issuetype?

you might have to use the Jtricks plugin. it has the following function that can get you the data you need:


Thank you Krishnanand_Nayak

Alternatively, you can also use JQL Booster Pack latest versions and type the following:


• Find issues in which their issue type have ever changed:

issue IN issueTypeChanged()

• Find Open issues which once was a Task and their type has changed:

status = Open AND issue IN issueTypeChanged("Task") status = Open AND issue IN issueTypeChanged("Task", "*")

• Find Bugs in which their issue type have once changed to 'Story':

type = Bug AND issue IN issueTypeChanged("*", "Story")

• Find 'Open' issues in which their issue type have changed from 'Feature' to 'Story':

status = Open AND issue IN issueTypeChanged("Feature", "Story")




Hope this helps you to create awesome queries <3

Kind regards
